Getting busted by the Homecoming police has got to be embarrassing.  I wonder if they wore corsages when they arrested them.

Homecoming is serious business in the USA.  It's like messing with football's little sister.  It's not some minor offense like overthrowing the US government.

I'm glad I never had the social standing in high school for homecoming to ever be of any significance in my life.

That's when investigators found evidence of unauthorized access to the system linked to Carroll's cellphone and computers at her home. The were 246 votes cast for homecoming court from those devices.


Dumbass!   Seriously that was a stupid mistake to make. Almost as stupid as committing felonies to get your daughter elected as homecoming queen.

Dude, they rigged a homecoming election. It's not like they did something trivial, like storm the capitol to overturn a national election.

I'm guessing you didn't RTFA.  The mom has been accessing lots of student records for a long time, it wasn't just for this one popularity contest.  Guess is they hit the kid with a big charge to try to get her to flip, and then put the mom away for real things.

For computer hacking? I think this is reasonable.

I imagine it's more about breaking into the students' accounts than it is the homecoming voting issue. If she had changed everybody's algebra grades to A while she was in there, no one would have reported it.

It doesn't seem right that the girl is facing charges as an adult for this.  Not only was she 17 at the time, it's clear her mother has been abusing access for a while, giving the girl a skewed view of right and wrong.  This was not a violent crime, nor a financial one.  While she should be published, it needs to be reasonable.

rip off people for millions and ruin lives, maybe pay a fine, maybe spend a little time in club fed if you greased all the right palms.

And anyone at all can imagine there is anything here to be protected or be worthy of any sacrifices?

All of the charges are pointed towards the unauthorized use of the network and the confidentiality of student records. None of them face the Homecoming Election.

Just like Capone and tax evasion.  They can definitely prove the hacking to rig the election and are pretty sure there was more.

Seems like the mother, with her access, is the criminal here. (shrug) I think the daughter has a good case for being a victim here, her mother having contributrf to the delinquency of a minor or some shiat like that, hopefully the daughter's lawyer will give that a shot.

I mean, I see "rigging a homecoming queen election" as essentially a victimless crime. Yes, accessing student files without permission was the real crime here, which the mother committed/enabled.

Yeah, I'm watching "Cruel Summer." LOL

The homecoming election isn't the issue. Student's private information was accessed, apparently multiple times. The mom was at the very least negligent, possibly complicit. While the homecoming election results are truly low stakes, personal information like grades, medical / psychological issues, etc. were accessible by non-authorized persons. As a minimum mom deserves to lose her job, more if she knew what the daughter was doing. The kid shouldn't have her life destroyed but she needs to face some serious consequences. More importantly, anyone who may potentially employ her needs to know her ethics and judgement are questionable. Simply put she can't be trusted around sensitive information and money at least until she demonstrates that she's made changes and her ethics have improved. If after 10 years or so of behaving herself and behaving responsibly she can apply for a pardon.

Hey I'm happy for anyone involved in those campy movies. It's good honest work.

I know whenever I wind up unemployed I can't even watch tv because I get jealous that the people in those movies and those who make them, have jobs and I get depressed.

Sorry I have a three picture deal with Ted McGinley right now.  Tim is out.  As a compromise I can get Kelly Clarkson for the theme song.

I suspect that Mom has been giving her daughter access to her peers' records for some time. In which case it's a gross invasion of privacy which deserves to be treated seriously.

I've never understood the thinking behind trying kids as adults. Kids are not adults. If you think they have a firm grasp of consequences and reactions then give them the vote.
If not, stop trying kids as adults.

Methed up gators in a barrel, indeed.

As to the article, how pathetic and shallow.  Almost no one ever remembers anything about hoco queens, but this kid will have every potential employer know all about her high school adventures.  So, I guess she's got that going for her.

I agree.  They'll probably get more time than the traitorous rioters from January 6th.

Of course, mom was probably one of the traitorous rioters from January 6th.
